An orthodontist is a dental professional who is trained in correcting various issues with the teeth and with the gums. There are many different ways that an orthodontist can help improve your smile while also ensuring your dental health is up to par. Here are some examples of how this type of professional can make a difference.
Many people have more molars than they need. The result is that the back teeth are somewhat crowded. This increases the potential for a number of dental issues, including cavities and uneven wear on the teeth. Orthodontic appliances are a great solution to this problem.
Correct Protruding Teeth
Teeth that protrude make it more difficult to bite and chew food properly. There’s also an increase in wear on those teeth. The result can be losing them earlier in life than necessary. Choosing to seek out an orthodontist can help by bringing the teeth back into proper alignment. Once that’s done, you’ll like the way your smile looks and chewing your food will be a lot easier.
Align Your Bite
Did you know that the misalignment of your teeth can lead to all sorts of dental issues? The fact that the teeth don’t line up properly leads to additional wear and may even eventually cause problems with the dentin and enamel. Think of what that means in terms of how your teeth look.
An orthodontist can help by correcting the alignment and ensuring that the upper and lower teeth meet perfectly. At the same time, the alignment also improves the look of your teeth, leaving you feeling more confident in your appearance when the chance to participate in some type of social event arises.
Straighten Crooked Teeth
Crooked teeth don’t help the look of your smile and they can cause damage to the surrounding teeth. Your orthodontist can help by using braces or other types of aligners to properly position those teeth and ensure they are firmly in place. While it may take some time to straighten the teeth, the investment of time and money is worth it. Once the work is done, you can expect it to last a lifetime.
